I was just wondering if anyone else's labs had curly hair. Lucky Dog has curly hair that runs down the center of her back. Other labs I've seen have straight hair. My trainer said that it's just a quirk with some labs.
Just curious! ;D
Haven't seen a lab with curly hair, but saw a beautiful "curly-coated retriever" at the dog park the other day. Thought it was a labradoodle...
Either way, what fun to have a bit of curly hair on your lab
I guess not curly curly. But wavy. I'll try and post a pic of it!
Rowan has somewhat of a 'wavy' 'coarser' coat and I have been told many a times 'she has a great Labrador' coat. She takes after her Daddy apparently in that regard.
Rowdy and my late black Lab Midnite have/had that wave down the center of the back.

Only on Laika's back, she has a bit 'curly hair'
Ohw, and her tail is fluffy! ;D
Baloo has wavy hair on his back as well.
It gets wavier when it's wet, I love it!!
Baloo - 5 year old black lab
Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
Hahaha, that's it exactly!! Nice. I was wondering if it was because I didn't brush her enough!
poppy has wavey hair down her back spreading out wider on her rump, as see here.

A one to three inch wide strip down the back of courser wavy fur is quite common and within the breed standard. Youused the term curly, when does a wave become a curl? What I read sayd the curly is not within the standard. So, I guess if the hair does not loop back on itself, it is wavy?????
